Stephen Bennett: Stop sucking pipes!

by Jeremy Hooper

BenettFrom time to time people will ask me what Stephen Bennett -- a man who until recently was one of this country's most prominent and called-upon openly "ex-gay" personalities -- is up to these days. Today, I'm happy to say that I have an answer.

Stephen has just made a pair of posts on his blog. And as you can see: He's still dedicating his life to how people handle their pipes. Only this time, he's more into converting homeowners than homos:

Preventing Frozen Pipes
December 11, 2009 in Homeowners

When water freezes, it expands. That’s why a can of soda explodes if it’s put into a freezer to chill quickly and forgotten. When water freezes in a pipe, it expands the same way. If it expands enough, the pipe bursts, water escapes and serious damage results.

Why Pipes Burst

Surprisingly, ice forming in a pipe does not typically cause a break where the ice blockage occurs.
*KEEP READING (if you must): Preventing Frozen Pipes [Stephen Bennett blog]

So there ya have it: Stephen (who is apparently now a real estate agent) is still focused on how to stop people's pipes from bursting in the way they naturally want to burst. But the leaky climax at hand (or mouth or...) is no longer of the orgasmic variety. His theories are now focused on concepts that actually hold water.

Now that's a change we can get behind, Stephen.

Speaking of professional ex-gay has-beens, does anyone know what Michael Johnston is doing these days? He's the one who, knowing he had HIV, was participating in bareback sex orgies at night, while his day-job was operating an ex-gay outfit named Kerusso Ministries.

And, as Bennett notes, he's not even writing this stuff.

It appears there is still an 800 number and a group for parents:

The same 800 number is used for taking orders for his products:

Though, the products page is only going to be found by folks who are specifically looking for it.

For $1,000+ you can hire him as a Christian Motivational Speaker:

I hope the realty business treats him well. It strikes me as positive and significant that his love of hyperbole, grandiosity and self-promotion hasn't carried over yet... no websites hailing him as the Greatest Christian Realtor Ever, no books or CDs saying he's discovered new ways to make millions in a down market.
